Boost Mobile has unveiled a new offering that promises to reduce the cost of wireless bills over time. Shrinkage is meant to reward customers who stay with Boost Mobile and pay their bills on time. For example, those who start with a $50 monthly plan will see it drop to $45 per month after six months of on-time payments. It will further drop to $40 after 12 months of on-time payments, and $35 after 18 months of on-time payments. Shrinkage is available to both regular and BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plans.

That's because it goes against everything we've been taught.

taking this a bit further...

so after 60 months of on time payments, They start paying *ME* $5 per month?
Probably has a minimum... Razz
That would be the kind of response to be expected from a Verizon/AT&T customer. Laughing

Incentive

To receive an unlimited plan for $35/month for paying your bill on time after 18 months is a great incentive.
Hopefully other carriers will pick up on this as well.
Back up to $50.00!

Sounds like a great idea, but only if...

You can find a Boost customer who actually pays their bills on time. They are few and far between.
Right and I am sure that's what they are counting on down the line. Also who knows after 12 months or 18 months who knows there maybe be something better out there. The bottom line is cheaper isn't always better.

Don't know where you are but we have business accounts that switched to Boost with 25+ lines and customers that pay their bill 1-2 days before is due, so we pretty much don't see any customers that are late.

True, but look at the demographic Boost is aimed at.

Where you at?
